from now. this bill says if you don't vote for the ryan budget, because we know the votes are on the other side of the aisle to pass the ryan budget, then we go back to putting the credit of the united states at risk. the last time the american people looked at the ryan budget, they rejected it overwhelmingly. do you remember the election of november just a couple months ago? they rejected those cuts in medicare, those cuts in medicaid, those -- the tax cuts for the wealthy. and yet all of this is being put back on the table by holding the debt limit hostage, holding the credit hostage, holding american jobs hostage. so if you don't vote for that budget, then they get to play with the debt limit again. they get to play with the debt limit again. we got big lists to make between now and then, folks. we have sequestration. we have tax reform. we have a budget to write. let's just get down to the business and do it. just do it. don't play with the credit of this country. don't play with people's pension plans. don't play with the interest rates of corporations have to pay to
the gentleman representing the ways and means committee, mr. ryan, who's also -- paul ryan, chairman of the house budget committee, in testimony said that he intended to make sure that he would produce a bill exactly supporting what we are trying to do here today and would bring that to the floor as would be faithful in doing that. look, maybe people are upset that we're putting their pay at risk. maybe people are upset because it wasn't their idea, but the bottom line is is that paul ryan, john boehner, eric cantor, the rules committee yesterday said we think it's a good bill and we were joined bihari reid, the senate majority -- joined by harry reid, the senate majority leader. when the senate majority leader agrees with the house republican leadership and join with them in trying to make sure that we get our job done, i think that's a rare day. i think that's a good day when we can work together, when we can bring legislation that the senate openly welcomes and might i add, the president of the united states, president obama would sign this legislation. and he said so in the stat
houston. overnight, we learned new details about the suspected gunman. abc's ryan owens has the latest. >> reporter: they are the frightening images that have become far too common. police leading helpless students off-campus. a twitter picture of people cowering in classrooms. this time, the setting is lone star college, a community college north of houston. tuesday afternoon, authorities said that it wasn't a lone deranged gunmen targeting students, but two men having an argument near the campus library. their fight ended in gunfire. >> i heard bang, bang, bang, bang. someone started screaming. >> reporter: police say that a college maintenance worker was caught in the cross-fire, shot in the leg. a female student also went to the hospital after reportedly having a heart attack. the two gunmen, one a student, are in custody. the college chancellor said after so many campus shootings, his school is ready. >> we have had three training exercises for faculty and staff on what to do in an event like this. >> reporter: for "good morning america," ryan owens, abc news, dallas. >>> there's
. now let's go to some tweets. okay. first, this one is from ryan rainier @rainingbirdies. the tweet says believe devon and chesapeake are undervalued. i don't care for either. i don't like the natural gas stocks right now. they are in a world of hurt because we are flaring more natural gas than we need. i think this group which i keep thinking is going to eventually have a move gets defeated by warmer weather. why do you need either one of these? devon is not -- it's a very underperforming stock and chesapeake's trying to do so many things right but at the same time is still trapped in a largely nat gas model. they need to be more oily as it's said. here's a tweet from @brianmpc. he says my 8-year-old just got all the spelling words right and said boo-yah. i love your show and apparently he does too. i am always surprised. i see a lot of people -- i was a bar this weekend, where there were a lot of people in their 20s and got started watching the show in their teens and it was quite thrilling because all i heard was boo-yah from 20-something-year-olds. and i think it's -- it's -- we
a liberty-only patriotism which we're hearing from paul ryans but liberty and justice for all, more includ ine realistic. >> fast forward 2016, right? you and i were talking about this, both at kennedy center, latino sale ccelebration. vice president biden made an impression. what makes you think he's trying to vie for the latino votes? >> first of all i know joe biden and i think he's on campaign mode already. we saw a joe biden sprinting through the parade route yesterday. i think he was trying to show us he's a very spry, fit, 70-year-old who will be in very good shape in four years. he became the first vice president to get sworn in by ay ays a latina justice. first vice president to do that. it's a matter of time before we hear joe biden singing or in spanish or reciting irish poetry in spanish because i think joe biden is a very smart politician. realizes how important the latino vote was to this victory. and i think he's prepping himself for a 2016 run. look, he said it at the latina ball the head of the new pack, a hispanic democrat super pac founded and that includes eva longoria
, just taking stuff from the federal government and including paul ryan. he used that word during the campaign. and not a loan. i think it was clear, the president was directly responding to those conservatives who have used the word takers. >> let me give the president a simple test. he talked a lot about the work ethic. i have been advocating that we add a provision to unemployment that if you sign up for unemployment compensation, you have to take a course offered by a business in order to improve your job skills so at the end of your unemployment compensation you have a greater workforce capability and frankly 99 weeks of compensation is a two-year associate college degree. paying people 99 weeks. i said to the president, is there a common ground here? i agree with him, medicare is an earned benefit. social security is an earned benefit. medicaid is not. he should not lump them together. it's not about taking. how do we liberate poor americans, give them the capability to be prosperous so we don't have to worry about it because they are rising, working, doing the right things.
